Seasons Greetings! Welcome to all the new folks who recently signed our mailing list. Hope you are all well and able to find time to relax and enjoy the holidays, even with the troubled state we find our world in. Sometimes it seems trivial to be focusing on music at a time like this, but we hope people find some respite and healing from listening to music. It helps us get through each day and we hope we’re spreading some of that around.

We only have private events lined up right now except for one thing this weekend. Our local Community Presbyterian church here in Calistoga has asked us to play this Sunday Dec. 5th at their 10:30 am weekly service. Although we’re not members of the church, we have played a wedding and a memorial service there and since then they’ve hired us from time to time. This time they’ve asked us to do some Christmas carols. (They didn’t mind that we’ve taken the liberty of changing a couple of lyrics we weren’t quite comfortable with!) The Pastor, David Moon Wainwright, also asked us to play 4 songs he chose off of our CD which we look forward to doing. This church service is of course open to all and there will be coffee and cookies and people making advent wreaths after the service.

We want to remind folks that we’re available to play parties and at this time of year we have some traditional and alternative holiday songs including instrumentals of some of the old carols.

Also a reminder that our CD’s make nice gifts. Most of you on our mailing list already have a copy yourselves, and if you’ve enjoyed it, someone you know might like it too! If you are interested you can go to www.cdbaby.com/cd/llmr or, of course, you can contact us directly at 707-942-0913 or by email at tunes@lindalouandmichael.net

Wishing you all the best,
Peace and Happy Holidays~
